Director Chloé Zhao provides an update on Eternals 2
Eternals director Chloé Zhao sat down with the Hollywood Reporter to discuss Johnnie Walker’s Female Filmmaker Initiative and what’s next for her. Part of that conversation involved the director’s involvement in a sequel to Marvel’s The Eternals. When asked if she had any interest in helming a follow-up film to the Eternals, Zhao replied, “no comment.”
Offering no elaboration on her response, Zhao did lend insight into her decision to work with Marvel by saying, “you just have to stay true to the kind of film you want to make and who you are and the people you’re collaborating with.” Even if Zhao doesn’t return to the MCU, it sounds like she harbors no regrets about the film she made.
Fans of Chloé Zhao can hold out hope that her no comment suggests that she might be tight-lipped about any future project, keeping any film under wraps until Marvel Studios decides to announce. However, given the film’s lackluster reception from critics and fans, we are likelier to believe that Zhao is done with the Eternals.
While Marvel has yet to announce a direct sequel to Eternals, it is possible that characters introduced in the origin story could pop up in other Marvel projects. Harry Styles Eros was introduced in a post-credit sequence and will likely feature somewhere else, if not in a second Eternals film. As for the rest of the Eternals team, they could pop up in another feature film or even a Disney+ project somewhere down the road.
What do you make of Zhao’s comments about Eternals 2? Do you think the filmmaker was treated fairly, and do you want to see a direct sequel to Eternals in theaters? Let us know your thoughts in a comment and stay tuned for more updates on the Eternals and other Marvel projects.
